Just watched the movie "To Have and Have Not" for the first time. In the last minute, as Bacall and Bogart depart, the band plays a tune with what looks like a tin whistle. It is end blown and has no keys so I would bet money on it. I would paste in a snapshot if I knew how to do that. Any one else noticed this & could comment on it?

Thanks, dunnp. I did not think to look for the movie clip on youtube. It seems you can find almost anything on youtube.

You think you found something new & it turns out that some C&f person found it before. Thanks, all.

It's too bad that the musicians were never
credited in those days. That's Hoagy Carmichael
at the piano so it was probably a guy from his band,
or perhaps either of these guys. I looked for fotos
of the following players to no avail.
Anyway here's some new whistle playing
from the swing era at least to my ears.
